Worked perfect
Well built control arm. No reason to spend $220 on bother OEM or other brands. Easy install thanks to DIY video provided on site.

Happy so far
The price on this part was significantly lower than local stores or anywhere online, so I'm giving this a try. Parts like this take a lot of wear and tear and I hope the quality is up to par. The part fit perfectly and was shipped promptly. Customer service on the purchase end was very good.

Amazing site
Not only the cheapest control arm I found online, but their video on installing the control arm was PERFECT! With no mechanical background I managed to go from not even changing my own oil, to replacing my own suspension. 6 months later, still couldn't feel better about my choice in buying from 1Aauto. THANKS!!!
